Lemmings

Modern atheistic scientists behave in a manner that is a lot like the stories told of lemmings.  What does a lemming do when you tell it there is a cliff? It keeps going. What does an evolutionist do when he finds abiogenesis (life magically appearing from non-life) is impossible?  He makes up a scientifically and statistically impossible story about lightning and “pre-biotic soup”, and keeps believing in evolution.

What does a lemming do when he sees the ocean?  He keeps going, runs over the edge, and into the ocean. What’s an evolutionist do when he finds the geologic strata are much more readily explained by a Global flood and are NOT by theories of hundreds of millions of years?  He doubles down on “his side” of the evidence, and keeps on believing in spite of the facts.

In all the old stories,the lemming keeps on running to its own death and destruction, in spite of evidence it may see directly in front of its own eyes.  In the same way the evolutionist keeps on believing that his way is the only way to interpret the facts, even when the Bible often provides a better explanation for the findings in geology, biology, astronomy and physics than uniformitarian assumptions (the belief that all rates of biological, geological, and chemical change have remained constant) .

How does an evolutionist explain the origin of the universe?  He makes up a term he calls a “quantum fluctuation”.  (There was nothing, then for some reason something happened to nothing and everything appeared.)  Now I challenge any “scientist” to explain what that is, where it came from, and why anyone should actually believe that over the Biblical account of creation!

The one thing that unifies “modern scientists” (except for the tens of thousands of creation scientists who research with eyes open to other possibilities) is their complete refusal to accept the possibility of a Creator God.  So is it any wonder that their often irrational, unscientific, biased studies always support the outcome that there was a Big Bang and suddenly “it just happened”.  They believe there was no God, no Creator, because human scientists in their pride have said so.  And so we have believed, at least until the facts about the earth and life and genomics and geology began to show HUGE holes in their logic.

Stephen Hawking said, “Scientists have become the bearers of the torch of discovery in our quest for knowledge” (1)  And he also said, “Intelligence is the ability to adapt to change.” (2)  Yet atheistic scientists for the last 100 years have consistently turned away from any new knowledge, fact or scientific finding that does NOT support their presuppositions about the origin of life or the Universe. In this, modern scientist has condemned itself, by not applying the scientific method fairly and rationally to all areas of study.

I would think Hawking’s seemingly rational quote “One can’t predict the weather more than a few days in advance,” would have attributed a little more humility to the man.  But instead he pretended he KNEW when and how the universe began, and postulated in grandiose fashion that “There is no heaven or afterlife” (as though he KNEW this)  He bragged, “My goal is simple. It is a complete understanding of the universe, why it is as it is and why it exists at all.” (3) And this is one of the men modern scientists consider a hero?  Does the reader know that NONE of Hawkings predictions have been verified?  None of his black hole radiation has been measured. The explanation from the Guardian, in bold headlines is this:

We still don’t have the technology to verify Stephen Hawking’s big ideas.”

And yet like lemmings, professors at colleges and universities gleefully follow his inane and unprovable “scientific discoveries” as though they are “the gospel Truth”… and sadly, perhaps to the atheist community they are.

Who are you going to trust?

When people say “Scientists believe… or Science teaches…” the statement that follows is likely to be erroneous, or at least a gross oversimplification.  All scientists cannot be lumped together any more than all preachers or teachers or truck drivers can be lumped together.  It is virtually impossible to get even the scientists within a specific branch of inquiry to agree on their research conclusions.  So it should come as no surprise that scientist in different branches of science may disagree as well.

So when an atheist says they “know” that evolution is a fact, or they “know” that the universe is 14 billion years old, that atheist is speaking for himself or herself.   When they say scientists agree that evolution occurred, they are at best uninformed, or at worst deliberately lying. There are hundreds of thousands of very intelligent, scientifically trained individuals who would disagree.

When we put our faith and trust in science, we should be aware of a few facts.  Science is quite good at telling us how high, or how far, or how big, or small or hot an object might be. Science can develop wonderful ways of evaluating this marvelous world, and seeing into the vast reaches of the universe.  But “Science” also brought us the Titanic, the Hindenburg, methamphetamine, LSD, and the Atomic bomb.

Some people say they “trust science” and so they believe in evolution and abortion and global warming.  Does that mean they also trust science and want to take meth while enjoying a ride on the Hindenburg? No, probably not. But each statement is equally illogical.  You see, science makes many claims.  Some are easily verifiable and others are not.  Take the science of pharmacology.  The belief in “better living through chemistry” has been both a blessing and a curse. Pharmacology has both saved millions of lives with medicines like insulin and antibiotics, and destroyed millions of lives with opiates, LSD, and addictive benzodiazepines.

So when it comes to the age of the universe or the origin of life, it is reasonable to question “scientists” who claim they have an intimate knowledge of such things.  Especially when they change their minds at least every 50 years when new findings require a whole new theory.  It is far more likely that they are spouting a popular opinion than offering a proven or time-tested Truth.  Behind closed doors, most scientists frankly admit they don’t really know much about the origin of the universe or how life originated.  “This matter is far from being settled by astrophysicists and cosmologists, so stay tuned. There could be radical new developments in the future.” (From the site Stringtheory.com.  Article entitled “How old is the universe”.

Consider that fact that scientists and astronomers (the same ones who say they know exactly how old the universe is) quite literally cannot find or measure 90% of the universe.  Yes, we can observe, see, or measure less than 10% of the mass of the universe.  The scientists have no idea what comprises the other 90%, but according to their calculations “it must be there”.  According to author Vera Rubin in Scientific American,  “As much as 90 percent of the matter in the universe is invisible. Detecting this dark matter will help astronomers better comprehend the universe’s destiny.”

So here is the latest, as the astrophysicists continue their guessing games. “Overall, dark energy is thought to contribute 73 percent of all the mass and energy in the universe. Another 23 percent is dark matter, which leaves only 4 percent of the universe composed of regular matter, such as stars, planets and people.” SPACE.com Senior Writer Clara Moskowitz.  So like I said, over 90% of the universe is missing. The very scientists who claim they KNOW there is no God, cannot find over 90% of His creation. I don’t know about you, but I think I will wait for the other 90% of the facts to arrive before I make any conclusions.

Nehemiah 9:6  “You alone are the LORD You have made the heavens, The heaven of heavens with all their host, The earth and all that is on it, The seas and all that is in them You give life to all of them And the heavenly host bows down before You.

Isaiah 24:4-6  The earth dries up and withers, the world languishes and withers, the heavens languish with the earth. 5 The earth is defiled by its people; they have disobeyed the laws, violated the statutes and broken the everlasting covenant. 6 Therefore a curse consumes the earth; its people must bear their guilt. Therefore earth’s inhabitants are burned up, and very few are left.
